Rosa Montero is an acclaimed novelist and an award-winning journalist for the Spanish newspaper El País. A native of Madrid and the daughter of a professional bullfighter, Montero published her first novel at age twenty-eight. She has won Spain's top book award, the Qué Leer Prize, twice--for "The Lunatic of the House" in 2003 and "Story of the Transparent King" in 2005. A prolific author of twenty-six books, her other titles include the short-story collection "Lovers and Enemies" and the novels "Beautiful and Dark," "My Beloved Boss," and "The Heart of the Tartar."
This book is one of the best books I have read in recent years. I just read Instrucciones for a Spanish class at university and I cannot believe how complex and beautiful the Spanish language can be. Rosa Montero writes with levels of confidence and forethought that I have seen from another author for quite some time. Simply put, I would recommend this book to anyone! Because of this book I have started buying each and everyone of Ms. Montero's books to read over the summer.
This book will not disappoint! The plot is complex, the character development is both constant and subtle, and you will never want to put the book down.
